It’s week four of the Style Perspectives where 14 bloggers each pick a look that defines their personal style. The featured blogger on the Blended Blog showcases her signature style (the prompt for that day) and then the other bloggers (on their personal blogs) show how they interpret it. Be sure to stop by the Blended Blog to see the featured lady.
Did you see the white pants look last week? Here’s a quick recap. I love how each person expressed their individual personality and how different everyone looked.
If you’re a blogger join us by linking up on the Blended Blog to show us how you would wear the prompt! Remember that even if you don’t blog you can join in by using the hashtag #theblendedblogstyle on social media.
This week Abbie of Grumbling Grace is featuring a patterned blouse with neutrals. Check out her looks here.
I took an inventory of my patterned tops and although I have floral, gingham and polka dots, the overwhelming amount of patterns is stripes. I love stripes!! I apparently do not love geometric or aztec because I have NONE of those.
My neutral was denim (the ULTIMATE neutral, right?!!) but I added a pop of red in my shoes (gotta have a little fun!). My first look is a long sleeved boat-neck Old Navy top. Although it’s spring here (oh the pollen!!) it was a little cool this morning and this top is perfect for the temps. I have another one just like it in red and cream.
It’s a bit short however so on a day where I needed a little more coverage, this swing top would be perfect. It’s a little longer and very flowy and I would be able to reach my arms overhead to my heart’s content, without fear of exposing my belly!
When the weather warms up a bit more, I have a short sleeved option. I actually have this same top in pink which I received as a hand-me-down. The blue Ralph Lauren tee was found at TJMaxx.
So here are my three striped looks: long sleeved, medium sleeved, short sleeved.
What is your favorite pattern to wear?
Now go check out the other gals at the links below and post your pix on your favorite social media sites! I wanna see!
I’m a wife, mom, and a homeschool teacher. I’m always behind on housework and paper pile sorting. I’m fond of this crazy life but not of melted cheese. I want to follow hard after God, making each day really count. I like to run, read, cook (and eat!). Thanks for joining along on my journey!
